Subject: Use audio track 2 on MPEG-2
A/V sync on the MPEG-4 file is terrible, off by ~30 seconds. The MPEG-2 file plays perfectly in VLC, I just had to choose audio "Track 2". For some reason the file has 32 audio tracks but only track 2 is valid.

Subject: MPEG-2 is indeed BROKEN
VLC will play the MPG2 with NO AUDIO, but technically the file is broken and cannot be converted or loaded into any programs. Consistent reports of "corrupt or broken file."

Too bad, so sad.

Subject: MPEG file corrupt?
It seems MPEG version is corrupt, can anyone confirm?

This episode scans through a lot of business software from old school mac companies like Cricket, Silicon Beach Software and Macromedia.

The then-new desktop publishing sector gets the most attention, and it's interesting to see how much variety there was in paint- and layout software at the time. Most demoed professional apps are strikingly slow though.

Oh, and there's some hilarious late-80s fashion in there. Random access also features a piece on the upcoming NeXT computer.
